Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i did the following
# urpmi dkms-spca5xx

First check to see if /dev/raw1394 exist? Does it?
If not create it as root with this command ' mknod -m 666 /dev/raw1394 c 171 0 '
Now see if that works.
It may not create itself again on a reboot. If using udev you can add this to your udev directory after you use the mknod first again ' cp -rp /dev/raw1394 /etc/udev/devices/raw1394 '.
I used the su to become superuser and then ran the command you listed. It does absolutely nothing???...I give the command and i get the command prompt again.. Out errors , no output...
what does that mean?
